Ozzy Osbourne now claims that there’s a chance he could tour again after previously declaring that he was retiring from the road.
We learned a month ago that Ozzy had postponed his 2023 dates and said in a statement that his touring days were over due to health issues. He stated, “Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way.”
While talking on his ‘Ozzy’s Boneyard’ SiriusXM show, he talked about his previous remarks. The show is hosted by Billy Morrison. And that’s when he said, In reality, he would go on tour once more, but only if he is physically able to.
Ozzy said, “So, if I can ever get back to where I can tour again, fine, But right now, if you said to me, ‘Can you go on the road in a month?’ I couldn’t say yes. I mean, if I could tour I’d tour. But right now I can’t book tours because right now, I don’t think I could pull them off.”
Ozzy continued by claiming that the initial report in the media was exaggerated before repeating that he would go on tour if his doctors gave him the all-clear. He said, “This f****** press drive you nuts, I mean, I looked in the magazine, ‘Ozzy’s on his last legs.’ I’m fucking not dying. If I get okay today. If the doctor said to me today, ‘Oh, you can tour.’ It would take another six months to get it together, you know? The only thing I’ve got that keeps me going is making records. But I can’t do that forever. I gotta get out there.”
Ozzy has returned to television through ads in addition to releasing music. Recent humorous advertisements for Workday and the Sony Playstation VR2 headset featured him.
